The Wainikoriiluva (Luva) River kayaking adventure combines 5 unique Fijian experiences into an amazing one-day trip! Begin with an overland journey into the Namosi Highlands, which takes you through the island's mountainous rainforest interior. Atop jungle passes, enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean before descending into the beautiful Namosi Valley. This tropical paradise is home to the quaint village of Nakavika, where you'll be welcomed as a friend in the home of the chief as you participate in a traditional kava ceremony!
A short walk brings you to the Luva River, where you take charge of your own inflatable kayak. After a brief training session, you're off to the Class II whitewater rapids and rock mazes of the Luva. As your kayaking adventure continues, you'll enjoy a riverside picnic lunch followed by a fun hike through lush surroundings to spectacular Wainuta Falls, where a refreshing dip in the pristine pool beneath awaits. On your way back, enjoy the views of cascading waterfalls, villages and swimming children, and take in the incredibly green and scenic rainforest backdrop.
